At Assisting Hands Home Care, we can help seniors and adults who need consistent care and supervision with our live-in and 24-hour home care services in Brookfield, Elm Grove, and Pewaukee, WI as well as the surrounding areas in Ozaukee, Washington, and North Milwaukee counties. We will ensure that a licensed caregiver is in your loved one’s home 24 hours a day to provide care and assistance and respond to emergencies.
As more seniors of the baby boomer generation are reaching retirement age, they are choosing to spend their retirement at home instead of receiving care at a nursing home or assisted living facility. This option gives seniors more independence and allows them to remain in the comfort of their home, but they will likely need some help to age in place safely.
The level of care that seniors and adults with disabilities need at home depends on their specific situation and health. Some may require part time assistance if they need help with household chores or rides and others may need someone present each day to assist with activities of daily living (ADLs) including dressing, bathing, eating, and toileting. If your loved ones suffer from a chronic condition, serious illness, or immobility, they can benefit from 24/7 care.
At Assisting Hands Home Care, we provide 24-hour home care and live-in care services to assist those in Brookfield, WI who need constant care. Our trained and licensed caregiver will always be in the home of your loved one, ready to provide assistance and respond to emergencies. These services can provide your family with the peace of mind knowing that your loved one is never alone.
Our live-in home care services will provide your loved ones with a high level of care as one of our caregivers will be living in their home each day. With these services, we assign two live-in caregivers to your loved ones who will live in the home for 3 or 4 days before switching shifts with the other. Our caregiver will help your loved ones throughout the day with their care needs including help with activities of daily living (ADLs), medication reminders, meal preparation, transportation, and certain housekeeping tasks.
You can expect the following from our live-in caregiver:
- Mornings: Our caregiver will wake up in the morning to help your loved ones out of bed and though their morning routines. We can assist with personal hygiene activities including restroom use, bathing, and getting dressed, and make them breakfast.
- Daytime: Our caregiver will be available during the day to help with anything including medication reminders and other personal care, meal preparation, and light housekeeping. We can also help get your loved ones to doctor appointments and help with their errands by providing transportation.
- Night: Our caregiver will make sure your loved ones get safely to bed each night.
Our live-in caregiver will provide your loved one with the care and assistance they need throughout the day and night as well as much needed companionship.
Preparing for a Live-In Caregiver
Our live-in caregiver will be living at your loved one’s home for 3 to 4 days at a time and will need a space in the home to sleep and keep their things. Those who receive live-in care from us must provide a space for the caregiver and allow them to sleep for at least 5 hours each night. When it is time to change shifts, our caregiver will change the bedsheets and get the space ready for the next caregiver.
24-Hour Home Care
The main difference between 24-hour home care and live-in care is the attentiveness of the care. With 24-hour home care services, one of our caregivers will be in the home, awake and alert 24 hours a day. Those who opt for 24-hour care will be assigned multiple caregivers who will change shifts every 8 to 12 hours. These shorter shifts mean that the caregivers will stay awake their entire shift ready to provide care and assistance. You can expect our 24-hour caregivers to provide the same care described above with our live-in care services. While your loved one is asleep, one of our caregivers will be awake in the home to monitor them and respond if they need help.
Our 24-hour caregivers will not need to be accommodated within your loved one’s home as they will stay awake over a shorter shift. Seniors who suffer from chronic conditions or serious illnesses could benefit from 24/7 care.
Caregivers You Can Trust
Having a loved one who requires 24-hour care is stressful enough. When you work with our caregivers at Assisting Hands Home Care, you can trust that your loved ones are in good hands. Our caregivers each pass a background check before hiring and they receive additional training to sharpen their skills. They are also licensed, bonded, and insured to protect you from liability. Our caregivers will always treat your loved ones with compassion and respect and ensure that they get the quality care they need.
